Craft Collective, an independent craft beverage distributor serving Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Maine, announced today the expansion of its service area to Vermont in conjunction with a new, local distribution partnership with Vermont Beer Makers.
The Springfield, VT-based brewery has worked with Craft Collective since 2020, and the brand has enjoyed tremendous success in each of Craft Collective’s territories. Vermont Beer Makers is now poised for growth in their home market with the support of Craft Collective’s experienced team and distribution infrastructure.
“Vermont is a special place for beer, and many of our leadership’s formative craft beer experiences happened there,” said Adam Oliveri, Co-Founder and CEO at Craft Collective. “We’ve wanted to distribute in Vermont since we launched Craft Collective in 2015, and are happy to now be partnering with a promising local brand to build the Vermont business around.”
Vermont Beer Makers, formerly known as Trout River Brewing Co., is one of 10 original Vermont craft breweries still in operation today. Their carefully crafted lineup includes a variety of popular styles, from their flagship IPAs, Verd and Pebble, to seasonal favorites and their experimental Innovation Series.
Norm Connell, Vice President of Vermont Beer Makers, commented: “We look forward to continuing to grow our brand throughout New England and beyond through our partnership with Craft Collective. We have relied on Craft since our beginning and will continue to do so as we grow and begin construction of our new state of the art brewery in Brattleboro, VT.”
Craft Collective’s service in Vermont will begin on March 7, 2022 with the exclusive distribution of Vermont Beer Makers’ lineup. Craft Collective plans to expand the portfolio with additional brands this spring. To learn more about Craft Collective’s family of brands, visit www.getcraft.co.
